I'm feeling a little peeved about a couple of policies at Chloe and Graeme's school and I'd like to know what you think.

It turns out the kids are not allowed to share or trade food with other kids at lunch. At all. Also, they can't leave the lunchroom until a certain sign is put up on the wall, even if they're already done and they can't leave if their table is at all dirty. Now, I understand wanting to teach the kids responsibility and cleaning up after themselves, but Graeme won't let me put cookies in his lunch because the CRUMBS will get him in trouble. I'm not exaggerating here.

Last but not least, Graeme's class (2nd grade) has to EARN their third recess each day. I'm not sure how this works, but they haven't earned a third recess yet.

Is it just me, or is this a little odd?

We've discussed this & I think some if it is plain iffy. I do agree w/ the no trading of food. Just for the danger of unknown food allergies.

Good luck!

It sounds more than a little odd. It sounds more gestapo. Good grief when are they going to let the kids be kids. I mean crumbs and recess are times in a kids life. Can't imagine dealing with this one. Good luck!

Love ya,

The crumbs is CRAZY! How SAD that a kid has to give up cookies to avoid trouble! Maybe they're trying to save on janitorial help?
